Friends, the suit is finished. OK, it still needs a few buttons here and there, but otherwise I am ready to move on.
I won't lie: this vintage 70's cotton-poly Springmaid sheet is a bit much as a suit, even for this dyed-in-the-bedclothes New Yorker.
I do love the jacket by itself, however. Thanks to interfacing and lining, the jacket has a pretty substantial feel for something that was slept on and Lord knows what else.
I'm wearing the jacket over the short-sleeve white shirt I made a few months ago, Vogue 8889.
You can see our entire photo shoot here.
A big thank you to Michael for allowing me to boss him around this morning. We really need another staff person for these shoots, if only to keep my make up dewy.
In closing, readers, do you think I should --
1) Wear these flowered garments as separates but never together.
2) Wear the whole suit, but hold out for a glamorous summer party -- or MPB Day!
3) Avoid used bedding from this day forward.
Have a great day, everybody, and to those out hunting eggs -- Happy Easter!
